Maude Thanks for transfering the memorials. I see there are a couple more for Maria Bregante. I will have to figure out a way to merge them into one. Gary

Louis Kavolsky
I was thrilled to find Louis's gravestone here and to learn where he and his wife Fanny are. I was able to visit them a couple of weeks ago because of your posting. They are my children's great-grandparents and I am researching the line for the family genealogy. Can you tell me how you got the information on his parents and siblings? I'd love to share with you!

Lee Pitts
Purissima Cemetery
I just wanted to thank you for posting this long lost cemetery. I have had heard many stories of it, but have never ventured out there to explore the site, but your photos and information on the cemetery is making plan a trip to the coast to visit this cemetery and the folks there. I am a photographer and plan on taking as many photos as I can of the place and the stones. I'll let you know when I have made it out there and share some of the photos. I'm hoping to get photos of the stones that you do not have...if I can find them. ;-) Also, thank you for the great history you have provided on some of the early residents of Purissima. :)

Charles F Crocker
Could you add dates and bio for Charles Crocker at Cypress Lawn?
He was president of the Southern Pacific R.R. and son of Charles Crocker, buried in Mountain View Cemetery, Oakland.
His birth and death dates are in a photo I placed on the site.

Bayside Cemetery
Thank you for your response to my message. I would have liked to reply privately but I can not find an address for you. I will note my records that all yours are in Bayside Cemetery. Thank you very much.

Bayside Cemetery
I have been researching Bayside, Mokom Sholom and Acacia Cemeteries for more than 15 years. I have an enormous database of burials from these three cemeteries which is being placed online at JOWBR on JewishGen's website. I would very much like to include those you submitted to Find A Grave. May I have your permission to include yours.

Are you sure these burials are at Bayside? The 3 are frequently confused and a lot of people think they are one as they cover from 80th to 84th Sts. and Liberty to Pitkin Aves. Adding to the confusion, the death certificates for Bayside and Mokom Sholom (until the 1960's) and the part of Acacia that adjoins Bayside all have Bayside as the place of interment.

Mount of Olives Cemetery Jerusalem
I went to Israel an saw many Graves in Hebrew. Can you translate?




I hope it is not a bother.

I called the cemetery today and got the location of your relatives. :) I couldn't go today because I had a wake to go to, but maybe I can get out there on Friday.

Added by Christine on Mar 18, 2009 5:16 PM

The large stone had the name on the front and nothing on the back.

As I was uploading the photos (there are photos of individual foot stones) I realized that the first names are not the same as the ones you listed. I'll upload all of them today and you'll see what I mean. I think I found the wrong Mintz plot, which is too bad, because I was SO excited to find it by just driving by! I'll call the cemetery office today and find out where your relatives are. I don't think I'll be able to get back there tonight, but possibly Thursday or Friday. It's not hard to swing by there on my way home from work. Sorry for the misunderstanding! Maybe these people are also relatives of yours?

Mintz graves
I am planning to visit the cemetery nextdoor to this one at some point this week. Do you know where in Emanuel Cemetery the Mintz graves are? If not, I'll take a drive through and see what I can find!

No, I don't have any more on them. I don't remember where I got the information, but I've never been to Bayside. May have been from obits, or from burial records from Bayside's office.

Purissima Cemetary
Maude, we have tried to locate this cemetary but have been unsuccessful. A local person advised it was in a grove of eucelyptas tries bordering HWY 1 and Verde Road/Purissima Road, but the small area we were able to explore was so overgrown we could not be sure if we were in the right place.

Can you tell us exactly how we can locate this cemetary?

Thanks for any guidance you can give.

Virginia Satir
Hi Maude
I am Karen from Long Beach CA. I am on vacation in Gunnison County, CO and visited the Crested Butte Cemetery. I have taken photos of Virginia Satir's headstone(s). But cannot not post them until my return home in mid-June. Her headstone is very unusual. It consists of three parts. Part 1 is a rock with her name made out of metal & attached to the rock. Part 2 has just her b/d and dod: 6-26-1916 and 9-10-1988. Part 3 is a placque of marble that is etched with this saying:

"I want to love you without clutching,
Appreciate you without judging,
Join you without invading,
Invite you without demanding,
Leave you without guilt,
Critize you without blaming,
And help you without insulting,
If I can have the same from you
Then we can truly meet and enrich each other"
Virginia Satir
